Lighting A Memorial Candle For One Of The Six Million - Poem by Lewis Eron

Even if I could light six million lights
I could not rekindle your light
And your’s was only one
Not one in a million
But one of six million
Snuffed out, blown out, crushed out
Lights

“Let there be light” and the world was full of light
And your light brought light to your world
Your home
Your family
Your street
Your town
Each year
Until the darkness came
And put out all the lights.

So now I stand
Match in hand
To light a light
Not your light for you
But your light for me
To brighten my world
My home
My family
My street
My town
Each year
Until the darkness is no more
And the world is full of light.

    We cannot forget. And we cannot forget by speaking about it. This Huge Sacrifice should shake all of us. I'm happy that Lewis is listening to the Wave and write about it. Mnimi, in greek means Memory. We must seek for our memory.
    So let's all have a good life. Awakenings. (Report) Reply
